Test OMA in Exchange 2003
How can I verify that OMA is functioning on my Exchange Server 2003?
Outlook Mobile Access (OMA) in Exchange Server 2003 is installed by default, and although you do need to configure it to run (see my Configure OMA in Exchange 2003 article), there is little that needs to be done.
You can verify Outlook Mobile Access (OMA) is functioning from a desktop machine running IE 6.0.
Assuming that SERVER1 is running Exchange 2003:
- From a desktop PC running IE6.0, navigate to http://server1/oma
- Enter the logon credentials for an existing mailbox which resides on server1.
- Click the OK hyperlink when you receive the warning about your device being unsupported.
- Welcome to OMA!
You can also run any sort of WAP emulators freely available on the net and perform a simulated connection to your mailbox. Note that you might get the same warning as above, just scroll to the right place and press Ok, or Ok and do not warn me (for SP1).

After providing your credentials and successfully authenticating, you will gain access to your mailbox.

Read Configure OMA in Exchange 2003 for more screenshots and information.
You can also Configure SSL on OMA, in that case make sure you’re using a certificate from a trusted source and use https://server1/oma (this is just an example, lamer…)
